Aside from how to poach an egg, and the severity of a tissue ending up in the washing machine, mum’s taught us a whole bunch of stuff. Beauty advice included. Perhaps you’ve been bleaching your locks with lemon juice since the tender age of 12, or rubbing Vaseline into your lashes every night. Whatever advice has stuck, you’re probably (like us) curious to know which of mum’s ‘tips’ are actually true. We’ve done the digging, and it’s time to debunk some mum myths (with the help of industry experts). Hair, nails, brows – all the stuff you’ve been wondering for years – answered in one beauty bible.
